Due to the reporting of unlawful activity involving, North Dakota’s homeland security director ordered the removal of state-owned trailers and water tanks at the protest campsite.
Their command center vehicle and two trailers provided by the North Dakota Department of Health were also taken away.
One of the trailers held supplies and the other their EMT Center.
Homeland Security Director Greg Wilz says the move is to avoid damage being done to the equipment, citing numerous reports of criminal activity.
A Newtown Ambulance is still there.
Memeber of Emergency Response at the site Johnelle Leingang said “It’s a minor set back and we are not happy but we will make do. We have to move forward”
The site still has buffalo tanks for water but they say losing the big one the state provided was tough because it had spigots that were helpful for cleaning and other necessities.
